Klöckner & Co SE: Operating income in fiscal year 2020 considerably above expectations

Disclosure of an inside information acc. to Article 17 MAR of the Regulation (EU) No 596/2014, transmitted by DGAP - a service of EQS Group AG.
The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.


In the course of the fourth quarter, the recovery in steel demand continued more strongly than previously expected. At the same time, the improved price level has already had a positive impact on the operating income (EBITDA) before material special effects of Klöckner & Co SE. Klöckner & Co was able to benefit disproportionately from these positive market developments due to the advanced transformation project Surtsey. Therefore, Klöckner & Co SE expects now an EBITDA before material special effects of €105-115 million for the full year 2020, contrary to previous expectations of €75-95 million, and still a significantly positive cash flow from operating activities.

In addition, the market recovery is expected to continue at the beginning of the new year and, in conjunction with the now rapidly increasing digitalization and restructuring effects from the project Surtsey, will lead to a considerably improved operating income before special material effects in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the same quarter of the previous year.

International School Augsburg (ISA): Investment in den Rohstoff Bildung

Die in Gersthofen bei Augsburg ansässige International School Augsburg (ISA) plant als erste internationale Schule in Deutschland den Gang an die Börse und macht damit erstmals das Thema „Bildung“ unter ESG-Kriterien investierbar. Die ISA, an der derzeit rund 330 Schüler eingeschrieben sind, ist als internationale Schule Teil eines globalen Schulnetzwerkes, welches das in Deutschland anerkannte IB-Diploma als Hochschulzugangsberechtigung anbietet. Im Rahmen des geplanten Campus-Neubaus sollen die Kapazitäten erweitert und damit die hohe Nachfrage nach privaten Bildungsleistungen in Deutschland und in der Region erfüllt werden. GBC-Analyst Cosmin Filker hat mit dem ISA-Vorstand Marcus Wagner gesprochen.
